That little dot at the end says "use the current directory as the
target directory." There has to be a space as separator before the
period or it won't work. The period is actually a (very short)
parameter, not a terminator as in text.
BTW since I cut my Linux eyeteeth back in the day when it came on
multiple 5.5" floppy images (i.e. original Slackware) I am used to
operating as the root user or administrator when it is useful to do
so. Hence when using a Debian derivative partition (Debian, Kubuntu,
Ubuntu or my favorite: Knoppix) I do this command one time:
sudo passwd root myfavoritepassword
From that day forward I can sign on as root, just like a real adult
who has 42 years of computer programming and operation under his belt.
No more typing sudo all over the place.
passwd is not a misspelling in this instance.
